FMCSA offering overview of Crash Preventability Demonstration Program

On August 1, 2017, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration will begin accepting Requests for Data Review (RDRs) into its Crash Preventability Demonstration Program through DataQs.

Crashes eligible for the Crash Preventability Demonstration Program must have occured on or after June 1, 2017. The Crash Preventability Demonstration Program is expected to last a minimum of 24 months.

FMCSA’s safety programs use data from 3.5 million roadside inspections and 150,000 crashes each year to prioritize its enforcement resources on those motor carriers that pose the greatest safety risks on our Nation’s roads.

Studies show that crash involvement is a strong indicator of future crash risk, according to FMCSA officials. The Crash Preventability Demonstration Program allows FMCSA to gather data to examine the feasibility, costs, and benefits of making crash preventability determinations on certain crash types. FMCSA will use the information from the program to evaluate if these preventability determinations improve the agency’s ability to identify the highest-risk motor carriers.
